Publisher's Summary

Religious fundamentalists and biblical literalists present any number of arguments that attempt to disprove evolution. Those with a sympathetic ear often fail to critically examine these creationist claims, leading to an ill-informed public and, perhaps more troubling, ill-advised public policy. As Aron Ra makes clear, however, every single argument deployed by creationists in their attacks on evolution is founded on fundamental scientific, religious, and historical falsehoods - all of them. Among their most popular claims is that evolution is a religion, that there are no transitional species, that there are no beneficial mutations, and that supposedly sacred scripture is the infallible word of God. Yet, as the evidence and data plainly show, each of these claims is demonstrably and unequivocally false. There is simply no truth to creationism whatsoever, and the entire enterprise rests on a foundation of falsehoods. This book explains and exposes the worst of these lies, and should be listened to by all who honestly care about following the evidence no matter where it might lead in pursuit of the truth.

    "Excellent overview of subject matter"

    This audio book makes me want to download the E-book, and if I was going to debate on the subject matter I'd want the paper version on hand. Excellent coverage of the subject matter.

    "A fantastic listen!"

    Many audio books struggle to give the mental layout provided by a visible text, which can mean listening to the audio book 3 or 4 times to organize the information in an everyday situation or in order to reference the material again at a later date. This book does not suffer from this disconnect at all. The information is arranged in a way that can make quick references for friends or those pesky "soul winners" possible and efficient. The material evolves logically in tandem with not only personal understanding, but also the chronology of human knowledge and how it came to be. On a personal level, I too was raised in a religious home. Intelligent Design was our gospel (often at the expense of the bible itself) and every thinker or scientist in history was part of a massive conspiracy that involved bad angels that resembled alien stories, rogue dinosaurs, Nazis and supernatural zapping of good guy angels or true believers. the earth was flat (or a disc) and the flood was recited as a foundational pillar of faith. Oddly enough, it was the bible and the psychologically abusive tracts that led to my deconversion but texts such as these have both confirmed my childhood doubts and have given me new perspectives (other than the political or humanities disciplines arguments) that I have been using in the past. I highly recommend this book!

    "FANGASMIC"

    I coined "fangasmic" to express just HOW fantastic this book is; when I was already recommending it, after only the 1st few chapters. I just finished reading, & it didn't to any degree disappoint throughout. This IS a MUST-read.

    "Amazing depth of knowledge"

    Atom Re has developed his broad and connected field of knowledge over years of study, division and defending evolution. Accessible, but be prepared for in depth explanations backed by copious examples.

    "Worth a listen, but in serious need of editing"
    If you could sum up Foundational Falsehoods of Creationism in three words, what would they be?

    Calls out hypocrisy


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    When Aron is on a roll, it's fine. But he stumbles often enough to be detracting. Sometimes he trips up on a reading and starts over, but this was somehow left in during editing. Feels very amateur.

    "Great book!"

    Very good information for the layman. Especially for those who need scientific simplicity. Aron does a great job explaining the facts and giving them to you in digestible, but fully explanative style. Great book. I highly recommend for those questioning the scientific integrity of the young earth creationists.

    "Aron Ra nails it."

    This was the most informative, entertaining, and valuable 16 hours I've ever spent. Yes, even at 16 hours long, I found myself disappointed when it was over and wanted more. Aron Ra has done his homework. I believe this to be the most convincing and well put together argument for evolution.
